The 1.4GW NeuConnect will be the first interconnector linking the UK and Germany and will be capable of providing power to 1.5 million UK homes.

After years of surveys, procurement, planning applications and approvals, the NeuConnect is moving forwards with awards for over £1.5 billion in major contracts and the appointment of Arup-Fichtner to oversee delivery.

The NeuConnect is an interconnector that will connect the UK and Germany for the first time. The UK market will benefit from increased competition, potentially leading to reduced costs for customers, while the German systems will have a new market to export excess renewable energy to reduce bottlenecks.

The interconnector will be a 450 mile long high-voltage land and subsea cable that runs through German, Dutch and British waters from Kent, England, to Wilhelmshaven, Germany. With a capacity of 1.4GW or 1,400 megawatts, the connection could have potential to power around 1.5 million homes on either side and help long-term integration of energy markets, increase competition and provide crucial energy security and flexibility.
